Who needs flowers when one can enjoy the leaves of a croton ? I'm forced to keep mine inside because I'm outside the tropics but I've seen some very large species in their natural climate conditions, and they are topped off by the fact that new leaves that are green and yellow, are contrasted by old leaves that are black and red...No tropical garden should be without one !
Thank you, glad you like it!
No, it's not quite as bad as that - I do have a life, you know, and some other responsibilities
I only paint for a few hours in the mornings - then my eyes get tired - by lunch time I'm usually cross-eyed!
Thanks, amiga, glad you like it!
Yes, at first glance Karin also thought I'd done her gum leaves, but no, this is just a croton plant (from Malapascua Island, btw.) which has been in the works since early June!
Beautiful painting, Pat! At first glance I thought it was a painting of my gum leaves, ha, ha... I got all excited about it too... The colours and leave shapes are very similar. If it wasn't for the title, I'd have thought they were a loose interpretation of the gum leaves... Well, I never said I was smart...
Glad you are still around. I thought you left without saying good bye.
Sorry! I totally agree, you have a lot more class than that.
You would never do something like that, nor would I.
Yes I love your last painting...hope you will have time to paint while in France! Or if not, perhaps you will post some photos once in a while. I'll be checking your scrap file.
